Here we are, an anxious 2 days later. Now they do say the best results from an at home pregnancy test are given when you take one at the time of your missed period. But that could be almost a week away and there is no way I can wait that long! Even though taking pregnancy tests have become somewhat of a sport that has each time left me defeated these last 9 months. And with the possibility of yet another crushing disappointment, curiosity and hope have got the better of me.
